I am a freshman majoring in social studies education. I plan to teach junior high history classes and would love to do that in an urban school setting. I love students and have such a passion for helping people grow and succeed in all areas of their lives. I also enjoy the outdoors. I love hiking, swimming, biking, and camping in the summer and fall, as well as reading and enjoying a good Disney movie when the weather is cold and dreary.
My first college work experience was at an after-school program in an elementary school where I still work today. I have learned to work well with other people as well as develop good decision-making and problem-solving skills. It is so exciting as a future teacher to already be involved with students’ lives and to be able to call it my job!
I chose to attend IUPUI because of its beautifully diverse campus and its convenient location. When I was applying to colleges, I looked for a place that would offer me opportunities to develop myself personally as well as academically. IUPUI has a wonderful, inclusive student body that allows students to embrace their differences and grow and learn together. IUPUI also offers many incredible opportunities for students to develop professionally with its location in the city. Students have the chance to gain real-world experience in a variety of professional fields.
